Goring woman moved by kindness of strangers after car breaks down

On Wednesday, April 27, at around 6pm, my car - a blue VW Polo - broke down in the outside lane of a dual carriageway going towards Rustington, across the road from Chips Away.

I had my phone on me, so I was able to call for a breakdown service, but so many people stopped to ask if I was okay. I was really touched by this and in particular I would like to thank a young motorcyclist who pushed my car out of the way, a van driver who pushed my car onto the central reservation and another young motorcyclist who came up to me and said he lived nearby if I needed to call someone.

I would like to thank the police who were passing and stopped to help.
